also known as Sodium carbonate or (washing soda, and soda crystals) is the water-soluble sodium salt of carbonic acid. Soda ash in its most common form occurs as a crystalline decahydrate, which readily effloresces to form a white powder known as the monohydrate. Pure sodium carbonate is a white, odorless powder that is hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air). It has a strongly alkaline taste, and forms a moderately basic solution in water. Soda ash has became a house hold chemical as a water softner and as a part of the soaps and detergents. Apart from this manufacturing process of glass is also an important applications of soda ash. Growing end-use industries and its products is expected to drive the global demand for the soda ash during the period of study.
Geographically Asia-Pacific dominated soda ash market
owing to the higher demand and consumption of soda ash into major applications. Asia-Pacific was followed by Europe and North America as second and third largest market for soda ash market. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly developing industrial infrastructure as a result of growing industry base as a shifting of global manufacturing base in the region and, government initiatives in developing nations such as China, and India in this region.
